    when you are looking at 3 bodies... and 7 feet.. whatchagonnado?

    you'd think they would have a better handle on thing today though.... a lot less bodies , more control over the battlefield, better body retrieval capacity, etc

    From the sounds of things, it could be better, but it's not as bad as the headline implies.


    When I read the headline, I was like...ok, which 3rd world country is dumping bodies and why (or for that matter, did they even bother to give an excuse?)?


    Then I realized it was, basically, medical waste disposal...Like if they have to amputate someone’s leg for medical reasons in a hospital…what, they give you the amputated leg as a souvenir?


    This is really nowhere near what the headline implies.

You have evidence that someone's head was cremated and thrown in the dump? When you have surgery, do they bury your removed parts at sea? Were they cremating entire bodies and throwing them in the dump? What if a man loses a leg in the field, and later lives and recovers in the hospital; and what if he then dies in the hospital? Are they suppose to find his leg and bury it with him? This is what PC gets us, insanity!

    As long as the bury the body with military honors, what else can they do? Is he not honored even without his leg?
    Seriously? And you call yourself a patriot?

    Honouring war dead, people who served a nation and paid the ultimate price is worth every freaking penny. You are still using millions to find MIA in Vietnam and from other wars, but the dead from Bush's wars get thrown on the trash heap?

    It does not have to be buried at sea, how about a common grave of the unknown solider? But for the love of god, throwing someone's remains on a landfill along with other waste is disrespectful to say the least. And you are being highly disrespectful to the American solider by having such an attitude... you are basically saying that an American soldiers life and death is not worth a dignified burial.. shame on you. You can easily find the money in the military budget... just cut the billions in corruption and waste in procurement and hiring of private contractors. Hell cut Congressmen/women's and Senators budgets , they are wasting millions, and use it on something worthwhile like providing a dignified burial for your war dead.

    I dont care what country we are talking about, but you do not throw military human remains, identified or unidentified on a landfill to save a few ****ing bucks.

    You're insane.
    Look buddy, you're not even American and you hate America. So don't come around here judging me. And don't judge the people who have to deal with this everyday, they have more honor than you'll ever show. You show me where someone isn't getting a dignified burial, show me now or GTFO.

    You're the very guy who would have us cut our military budget way down, so don't come on this site parading your hypocracy because no one wants to see it.
